All done - I think - but I said that the last couple of times!

The good news is that I gave HDR a quick test: it seems to look quite good, though (as I'm not an HDR expert) I'd recommend people apply their own HDR tweaks to my preset. The acrchive contains a couple of comparison pics.

Thanks for posting your new settings, that's great. just needed to tick my Ezca Boxes. just done the one flight at the moment, going to watch the footie to see if England get knocked out the 2nd euro match.

Thanks - I used it and really think it looks good as well - with no hdr.

 

What setting do you have in P3D for Shadows, and water, and  reflections? I am also going for a realistic environment look rather than "dramatic"

Thanks for this preset.  It is looking great with HDR and selecting the 'Turn off HDR luminance effect' and 'Contrast tuning'. 

 

Can I ask what 'ticking the EZCA boxes' does?  I don't see much effect if any so was just curious.

I understand it has something to do with EZdoc, but was looking for more a technical explanation...like what graphics tweak is affected when it is selected.

Here's a zip file with PNG pics of the relevant settings: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/71722992/adamski_p3dv3_settings.zip

 

Note: My settings are primarily from taking screenshots - not really optimised/suited for general sim use!

May I ask what type of "forest enhancement" you are using? Your forests, especially on the previous images look very dense and photoreal. ORBX Trees maybe?

No problem! Yes - you're right - HD trees enhance them quite a lot, but having all P3D shadowing options (cast/receive) also helps - as well as carefully choosing time of day to get the best effect. Shadowing options can kill your frame rates, but definitely worth it, IMHO!

 

I have to add that ORBX has done an excellent job with NZNI/NZSI - placement of the different *types* of vegetation and general colouring/blending is superb. It all helps!

Thanks. Yes, I am in possession of HD Trees as well, but they surely don't look like that. I guess shadowing and the add-on plays a significance role in the visuals.
